The brothers Ford are going to have two hours to tell Toronto “like it is” without the “media twisting” their message, The Toronto Star reports.
“I think it's going to be very informative. It's going to be controversial at times. But you're going to get the straight goods... from Rob and I. You aren't going to have the media twisting it around like they've been twisting it around for the last year and a half,” said Etobicoke Councillor Doug Ford.
Thursday morning Doug and Mayor Rob Ford appeared on the Jerry Agar show to announce they'll be taking over Newstalk 1010's The City program. The Sunday afternoon show was previously hosted by centrist councillor Josh Matlow, who frequently had a mix of political and media personalities as guests to discuss the issues of the day.
Both the mayor and councillor Ford suggested they won't be giving much air time to opposition members.
Ford also took a few minutes to discuss transit and continue his campaign for subways. When a caller asked about Toronto bidding for an Olympics someday, the mayor answered the city would need an expanded subway network if it ever hoped to win.
Agar took a moment to thank Matlow for his time on the show saying “this is not the case of Newstalk 1010 deciding to unload Josh Matlow. That Josh Matlow did something wrong.” It was just time for a change.
The City airs Sundays from 1 to 3 pm.
